Nigerians In Cambodia. by whocares1(m): 8:27am On Apr 10, 2013
How is life in Cambodia? I heard its Visa free to Nigerians and i want to know what life is like out there.
Re: Nigerians In Cambodia. by omega25red(m): 2:35pm On Apr 10, 2013
Dude just because a country is visa free doesn't mean it is the best choice for you. You should do a simple google search about the recent history of Cambodia. Also check on the economy of the country and how much the average person makes in a week.

that should be enough info for you to make your decision. By the way the only people who have fun in that country are people who already have money.

1. Cambodia is NOT VISA FREE for NIGERIAN passport holders, you will be DEPORTED right from the Phnom Pen International airport. Infact you cannot even leave Nigerian airports WITHOUT Cambodia visa in your hands. Please understand that Nigerian immigration officers and the airlines will not allow you to board WITHOUT VISA, I have been in this route many times and have seen it all. NOT EVERYTHING YOU READ ON THE INTERNET IS TRUE OR PRACTABLE. I have seen the Cambodian immigration deport Nigerians back to Nigeria once they land in Cambodia, sp please get your visa at hand before you leave Nigeria. If you finally get your visa you must keep between $700 to $1,000 Bribe for Cambodian immigration officers, once you land at their airport they will openly demand the money from you, they will start from $1,000 and the lowest they will accept is $600, they dont care whether you are tourist or business person. And if you refuse to comply you will be deported same day without reason. Bc of this many Nigerians now use the Siem Reap international airport also in Cambodia, the airport is smaller and not many big airlines fly there. the only advantage is that there is no wahala with immigration staff in this airport, if they ever demand money just give them 50$.


2. Dont let anyone deceive you, going to Cambodia to STUDY is BAD IDEA because their universities are the poorest in Asia. You better go to Thailand, India or Malaysia. All in all, Malaysia is best Asian country for study in my own opinion. The truth is, many Nigerians who claim they are going to Asia to study are actually going to HUSTLE. Hustling means anything from drugs to scam and what have you. I visit Vietnam and Cambodia quite often, i weep when i see our brothers there begging. Some lucky, some are not so lucky. Some go there with empty hands and make it through hard work, some tru bad things. In Vietnam many of our guys are doing ok with clothing business. Some of them now have factories in Vietnam where they made high quality clothes for export to Nigeria. So again, before you ,leave Nigeria for Asia be sure you know what you are putting yourself into. Remember that DRUGS is TOUCH AND DIE in ASIA? Remember there is NO JOB for West African citizens in the whole of South East Asia.

3. If you plan going to Cambodia to do drugs you will be caught, while I was in Cambodia last year they caught 4 Nigerians for the few months I spent there. Our brothers nor dey hear so no need to waste my time, i wish you best of luck.

4. Once you are in Cambodia you will love the place, it is not big like Nigeria but its peaceful, some of their citizens are as black as Nigerians and I wonder why they still call me AKMAN (Black man) since some Cambodia citizens are darker than Nigerians. Cambodia is one of the the few Asian countries that love and respect black people. While in Cambodia I was able to set up my company easily, was able to enter any government ministry without restrictions.

Cambodia is one of my best tourist destinations, I might create a thread for the wonderful times I spent in that country.

Go to ET office to book your flight to Cambodia.
ET does not fly to Cambodia but they have code-share agreement with Thai Air. The last ET flight will stop in Bangkok and continues to Hong Kong, then Thai Air will take you to Phnom Pen which is 40 minutes from Bangkok.

You sound like someone who is looking to move to anyhow country to hustle. I don't help such people. I only help people who are going to Vietnam to buy clothes/things and MUSt return after 1 month. If you fail to return after 1 month my friend who will provide the visa will have problems with his shipping business. if you wan go hustle for Vietnam try someone else, I am not a visa agent, i only help people that want to travel for genuine reasons

Ok, I am going to help. The problem is that my friend that owns shipping company in Vietnam is angry that many Nairalanders who got visa through him never contacted him when they arrived Vietnam. Now he is answering query from Vietnam immigration and this can damage his reputation and business.

This is 2016 I will no longer offer any of those helps anymore. I did lots of osho free over the years and didn't even get thank you in return. if you need visa for any country go to the embassies or try travel agents since Cambodia does not have any visa in Africa as a whole.
Good Luck
Re: Nigerians In Cambodia. by bellau09: 12:06pm On Mar 13, 2016
Bros, abeg how did you get your visa? Vietnam and Cambodia. Did you do the process yourself or paid an agent. The agent I asked was quoting huges sums. All I want is a week's break! What'd you advice?

Teaching English in Cambodia is a very good option. I am going there to teach English. Based on my research, you can go with a tourist visa and when you get a teaching job your employer can help you and get a work permit. You don't need to exit before coming back to start your work. Cambodia people are very nice.
